    “An essential read for freelance writers.” The Writer magazine
    “Packed with invaluable information. . . . The ‘extras’ Allen offers often distinguish her book from competitors’. . . . This is a giving writer, with a wealth of experience, sharing her knowledge carefully and generously.” —Alex Gazolla, author of the Mistakes Writers Make series and blog
    “There is not a more sound, comprehensive guide for freelancers on the market. I’m not exaggerating. Moira Allen, in her seasoned wisdom, lays out a solid, sensible roadmap for you to begin a freelance career. And if you aren’t doing well at the job now, this book might just tell you where to go back and make it right. Highly recommended.
